Rear Jug, ticking valve.

As the title explains, I've got issues. I've got a 2000 Kaw Vulcan VN1500 FI with 82k. I'm completely aware I have to pull the engine to get to the rear jug.

My question(s) is/are, what engine mods are at my disposal to put additional pep back in this bike. I have removed all the Cali emissions from the bike. After-market exhaust. After-market fuel modulator. Custom air-intake. What have I got left?

Also, anything I should be aware of when I crack this jug to fix the issue?

1. Best way for more power is to dial in what you have. Dyno tune is the answer.
2. If you replace HLA(s) , use Sealed Power HT2254. Much cheaper than OEM. Summit Racing seems to be about the cheapest.
3. Be SURE and replace HLA filters. Kawasaki # 14043-1056
